Story Notes:

This story is set in my “Domestic Unbliss” ’verse but it’s not in any way related to the other stories in the series and can be read as a standalone.
The general vibe of the series is Buffy having to deal with Spike hanging out at her place, with her family, for whatever reason

This story started with me wanting to have a little fun at Buffy’s expenses, by playing with Joyce’s overall good disposition toward Spike. It ended up going in a slightly different—but hopefully still fun—direction. 

Not beta’d. All mistakes (hopefully not too many) are mine.
